This stitch is just so lovely, don’t you think? This week on YouTube, we’re breaking down how to knit the elegant Twice Turned Stitch. Using a combination of twisted and slipped stitches, this stitch knits up into a nice dense fabric that would be right at home in a warm sweater.

I chose this stitch not just because it’s kind of funky to knit (YouTube being a great medium for teaching in 3D), but also because winter is on the way! A stitch like this is perfect for cold weather wear. The titular two turns in this stitch are created by slipping stitches over the course of three rows, creating a denser-than-average knit fabric that will hold heat nicely. Hot tip! 😉

Like I mentioned last week, I am aiming for new videos every 1-2 weeks when I’m on a design deadline, which I am now (thankfully – always grateful to get to to this crazy craft thing as my job). So in two weeks, the next video will drop and I will give you a hint: It’s one of my most requested tutorials!
